2015 Destination Partners,

I am proud to announce the new fireballrun.com responsive site. This new site flat out destroys any travel adventure site we've seen. The new site is exciting, simple and a snap to navigate. It is also responsive, meaning it is scalable to mobile devices.

So the bad news is we need you to restore your city profile page to be in keeping with the new design. Images are currently distorted because they are not formatted for the new look.

Due to the relaunch our traffic is going to plummet on the short term. However within 30 or so days, once Google has reindexed the site our traffic should blow past the older site. Since now 85% of searches come from mobile devices, Google indexes responsive sites much much higher than non responsive sites.

We hope you enjoy the new version. Our goal is to always improve our deliverables to destinations... beyond your event year. We're in a long term relationship and want to keep your excited about your ROI.

Any questions... call or email me. I was readmitted to the hospital last week but am back in the office on a limited schedule now. Quite frankly I think they got it right the second time.

Cheers- JJ

PDQ OPENS FIRST ORLANDO AREA LOCATION

PDQ OPENS FIRST ORLANDO AREA LOCATION 

 Quality Dedicated Restaurant Expects Continued Success

Sanford, FL (June 8, 2015) – PDQ, which stands for People Dedicated to Quality, opened its first Orlando area location on Sunday, June 7, serving over 1,800 customers. Located at 1610 Rinehart Road near State Road 417, this will be PDQ’s 40th restaurant nationwide. The fast casual restaurant concept specializes in fresh food fast. Known for their hand-breaded chicken tenders, PDQ also produces delicious salads, sandwiches, fresh-cut fries and hand-spun milkshakes.   

Although PDQ is also frequently referred to as “Pretty Darn Quick,” the fast casual restaurant prides itself on the quality control that goes into the food preparation. All menu items are made to order on site with the freshest ingredients and all generally served within 2 minutes. The fresh-cut fries are cut in-store from fresh whole potatoes, and the 11 signature dipping sauces and salad dressings are made daily in-house to guarantee quality.

“We were thrilled PDQ chose Sanford for their first Orlando area location. Sanford is a growing community that is open for business and growing new jobs. PDQ’s opening created an additional 75 jobs in our community and we look forward to a long-term partnership with PDQ,” stated Frank S. Hale, Executive Director, Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce.

PDQ stands out from other fast food chains and quick service restaurants by featuring an open kitchen, allowing guests to see the food preparation from start to finish. The 4,200 sq. ft. Sanford location will feature an outdoor patio, as well as counter and table seating accommodating up to 140 diners. 

While many are drawn to PDQ’s famous crispy tenders, the menu features a variety of options that cater to everyone. The high quality fresh chicken, which comes in tender meals, sandwiches and salads, can also be grilled or substituted for turkey. The hand-tossed salads are made with fresh produce and can be paired with seven homemade salad dressings.

“At PDQ, freshness is the name of the game,” says Bob Basham, PDQ’s principal owner and the co-Founder of Outback Steakhouse. “We’re not your typical fast food restaurant, we pride ourselves on being People Dedicated to Quality.  We always focus on the highest quality while providing the PDQ guest with fast, friendly service.”

PDQ is founded on the concept that high-quality food, memorable service and genuine hospitality are the cornerstones of an excellent restaurant. PDQ prides itself on a friendly environment focused on the highest customer service.
